Wardrobe Infusion via "The House of Mom"
Just a nice, warm, easy to wear look. I've been on the hunt for another small hat recently, but no luck yet. With a lot of looks, especially the 'vintage-y feeling' ones, i really like the look of a small, neat head. To my eye it gives a '30's or '20's vibe. This hat tarts up really easily with scarves and pins, which varies the look, but i wear it enough that i think another small one would be in order.
Actually, this hat came into my wardrobe via my mom. She'd had it awhile but never wore it, so when i spotted it over at her house she said, 'Take it!'. Ah, now that's the kind of shopping i really like
; ) No crowds, and the price is right. Besides, clothing with a little history to it is just more fun to wear.
Speaking of 'fabulous accessories via The House of Mom', here's a close-up of my holiday gift from my mother. I'd had my eye on Justina Leigh's CHARLIE bracelet since i saw her work on Style Underdog last summer. I kept an eye out for likely chains to try and cobble one together on my own, with zero luck. At least the one bracelet i really liked wasn't moving - until right after Christmas, when mom asked me what she could get me for the holiday. It had just sold!!! Fortunately i had the presence of mind to write to Monique Lopez regarding the possibility of a dupe - 'No Problem', came the reply. Whew!
A couple of weeks later, my bracelet came in the mail. I've taken it off two or three times since then. Thanks, mom! Now, what type of wardrobe support do you all get from your families, specifically 'The House of Mom'?
